If there’s one thing I love more than anything about running this blog and my magazine, it’s that I have the opportunity to share with you some truly amazing and utterly creative wedding suppliers that might not be included in more mainstream publications.
Brighton based designer Louise O’Mahony of Oh My Honey falls squarely into that camp. I first discovered her when I featured this amazing snow queen shoot that she not only supplied the dresses for, but modelled in too (that’s her with the blue hair!) and I quickly fell in love with her colourful, whimsical, 1950s inspired wedding dresses.
Although her designs very definitely take their inspiration from vintage gowns, Louise designs with a modern bride in mind. The classic 50s elements are given an updated, fresh approach, and are cut to fit the modern woman’s silhouette. Her use of colourful fabrics, unique embellishments and quirky flirty feminine shapes is second to none, and details such as hot pink zips, ombre tulle petticoats and rainbow embroidered polka dots make these gowns perfect for those who want to stand out on their big day!
So as you can imagine I was pretty damn thrilled when the lady herself got in touch to ask if I’d be interested in running a contest for one of my readers to win a wedding dress. The winner will be able to choose from the following four designs:
A simple sweetheart neckline, and dipped hem dress, made with beautiful matte satin fabric. With an amazing ombre choppy tulle petticoat fading from ivory to candy pink bursting out from underneath. This dress is sure to turn heads and is not for the feint of heart!
Fabulous off the shoulder dress made in silk dupion with multi coloured embroidered polka dots. The bodice is fully boned to nip you in at the waist and give you support. The skirt is a full circle skirt and lined, and the straps wrap around the front of the bodice and sit off the shoulders.
A classic sweetheart neckline bodice, that is fully boned with an overlay with cap sleeves in exquisite corded lace. The skirt is a full circle skirt with an overlay of silk organza with a satin band and bow at the waist. Fastens at the back with a concealed zip and hook and eye with pearl detail at the neck.
Hannah is made with luxurious blush pink silk chiffon and crepe satin. The delicately pleated bodice features a beautiful corded lace and bead motif, and comes with a satin waistband. The bodice is lined with silk and boned to accentuate your curves.
So gorgeous OMG!
